It would be years for Bohannon grasped the impact of Street’s death on the Iowa community, and the importance of the late guard’s consecutive free throws made record (34).

Bohannon made clear his reverence for Street on Sunday, when he purposely missed a free throw that would’ve broken Street’s record. It was a gesture that touched many including, Street’s father, Mike.

“I wasn’t prepared for that. Now having time to think about it, I must say WOW.!!,” Mike wrote in a social media post shared by Iowa Basketball. “What a way to show RESPECT for a fellow Iowa Hawkeye that you only knew by what you have read. I’m sure CMS would like to claim you as his little brother.”

Bohannon scored scored 25 points in Iowa’s 77-70 win over Northwestern. He’ll return to action Wednesday, when the No. 12-seed Hawkeyes play No. 13-seed Illinois in the first round of the Big Ten Tournament.
